The key to recording drum covers for YouTube and becoming super famous and having a billion followers on Twitter is camera placement. Our friend Brobus explains all of that and more in this 90-second video.
Thrice - “Burn The Fleet (Live at the Anaheim HOB)”
I just got a tweet about this song and it reminded me of how proud I am of it. It’s one of my favorite songs that we ever wrote, as it always felt like a cool/thoughtful blend of Elliott Smith and Cave In (two of my favorites). Always an absolute pleasure to play.
While we were recording PRODcast 50, Riley tossed off a joke about a grindcore band called PUIG DESTROYER. We both laughed, and them kinda went hmmmmm…
The next night he sent me drum tracks for our first song.
Nine days later we posted the first track off our debut EP.
We hope you enjoy the results and take them in the spirit in which they were intended. We’ll post the rest of the EP as we get it finished up, hopefully in the next week or so.
This is one of the funnest things I’ve ever been a part of. Huge thanks to Riley for getting the ball rolling, to Mike for sacrificing his throat for the greater good, Jon for bringing his guitar wizardry to the party, and to Scott for working his mixing magic on our basics.

What he said.
Not 100% Thrice related but it is 100% Riley related.
The comments on this article range from awesome to painfully lame. Check it out if you want to read them yourself. I’m glad Riley stepped in for a second to give further explanation. Excited and ready to listen! (x)
I’m honored to be a part of CX.City’s “Creative Minds, Creative Spaces” series. My interview went live today. It gives a little bit of insight on my creative process, space and routine (or lack thereof). Check it out if you feel so inclined, and if you’re in the market for some new threads, I’d highly recommend checking out CX.City’s gear. They sent me a box of tees and hats a couple weeks ago, and it’s really all I’ve been wearing ever since.
